Produced by Riverside Avondale Preservation, the Riverside Arts Market is a weekly community market hosted in Historic Riverside on Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., rain or shine.

 

At the Riverside Arts Market, we ask that RAM visitors and makers follow the CDC Guidelines if they are feeling unwell when attending the market so that we can continue to enjoy our Saturdays together in a safe and mindful manner.

Thank you for your help in keeping everyone safe!

We are advocates for the small businesses, artists, makers and farmers of Jacksonville. Our market serves as a vital economic outlet, acting as a community showcase of the arts and a communal gathering for farmers, artists, makers, and customers alike. We will continue to do everything we can to continue to support our partners and are constantly working to help them in any way we can. 

At the Riverside Arts Market, enjoy the harvest of the agricultural arts by supporting Florida farmers. Pick up the freshest local produce of the week, Jacksonville! To remain sustainable, farmers depend on your weekly purchases, so come for the freshest produce and stay for the fun. Our community benefits from all of us staying "loyal to local."
